Brett Brown interested in Celtics’ coaching job

Longtime San Antonio assistant coach Brett Brown, a Portland, Maine, native who played basketball at Boston University and grew up a diehard Celtics fan, is “extremely” interested in becoming the Celtics’ new head coach, league sources told the Globe Friday.

However, it’s unclear how long Brown, whom the sources said has not been contacted by the Celtics, will be on the market. The Philadelphia 76ers are very interested in hiring Brown, who is considered one of the top candidates available, to fill their head coaching vacancy.
